The science of biomechanics helps explain the causes of cell, tissue, organ and body system disorders, and supports clinicians in the diagnosis, prognosis and evaluation of treatment methods and technologies. Clinical Biomechanics aims to strengthen the links between laboratory and clinic by publishing cutting-edge biomechanics research which helps to explain the causes of injury and disease, and which provides evidence contributing to improved clinical management. Clinical Biomechanics explores all facets of body system, organ, tissue and cell biomechanics, with an emphasis on medical and clinical applications of the basic science aspects. The role of basic science is therefore recognised in a medical or clinical context.

Frequently Asked Questions
What happens after 3 months?
This is very variable. Unfortunately I am unable to give this a definitive answer as it is a very individual outcome.
Will I be working with others?
No. Unless you have signed up for a two-person package. You are purchasing a three-month package of MSK care with me, Jo Abbott.
Can I pay monthly
No. Unfortunately this has now been removed as an option due to the administration when following up payments.
How do I find out more?
You have a couple of options. Click on one or all of the packages below, or contact me (using the contact form) and we’ll organise a time to chat and discuss any of your questions you may have.
How do I know you can fix me?
I can’t. I do not fix people. As a nutritionist, ex-athlete, personal trainer, and clinical biomechanist I can support you to feeling better and improving your wellness in multiple models of health and wellbeing.
How long does the programme last?
Three months – and you are committing to the full term personally, emotionally, and financially.
Can I do this 3mth programme with a friend?
Yes. The Gold and Silver packages provide a reduced rate for two of you to share the experience. The science suggests committing to a new habit is far more successful when we share our experiences with a like-minded individual – so it’d be silly not to offer this too!
Do I have to have the specific tests you've recommended?
Yes. These are the minimal requirements needed for me to be able to identify what may be driving your MSK concerns.
What happens if we don't make any gains?
Even though this has never happened, that doesn’t mean to say it never will.
I shall ensure you are VERY specific with your needs and goals – these are our targets! If after 4 months we have made zero gains, then we shall discuss finalising the package and referring you on. You will be given a partial refund pro rata based on relative costs.
What is the most important aspect to these packages?
Open and honest communication!
ONLINE OR BY PHONE
If there is anything you are unsure of and need a little support with please feel free to book a complimentary 15 minute consultation with me. I’m here and happy to support you with any questions you may have. This is limited to one complimentary consult per person.
Complete the contact form below and please let me know what is the best way to communicate with you. For example; Zoom, MicrosoftTeams, FaceTime, or a general phone call and if so, on which number would you like to be contacted. Please also give me a little bit of information as to what your enquiry is regarding so that I can make sure I have everything available to support you.
I look forwards to chatting with you. Jo
Pre-Appointment COVID-19 Questionnaire
Upon booking your appointment, within your confirmation booking email, you shall be given a link to a vital pre-appointment COVID-19 Relative Risk eForm. This need to be completed and sent back to me prior to arriving for your appointment. If you fail to complete this eForm prior to your appointment, you will be required (by law) to complete the eForm at your appointment taking up vital face-to-face screening and treatment time.
When you arrive
When you arrive for your appointment please park on the drive in front of the gate and remain in your car. I will come and collect you once the clinic has been thoroughly cleaned. I have allowed 30 minutes between appointments for this. You shall need to arrive at your appointment alone, this includes dogs but excludes medical dogs. If you are the parent of a child (under 18 years) and live in the same household you are both welcome to the appointment with the necessary PPE (Mask and gloves).
Before stepping out of your car
Please stay in your car, I shall come to your car to take your temperature through the window. The temperature gauge is a non-contact forehead gauge of which only I shall touch. Avoid having the heating on in your car or drinking a hot drink prior to your appointment as we may get a false-positive temperature test results which will lead to a decline of your appointment. If your temperature is raised, your appointment shall be cancelled and rescheduled for another day. Please do not bring unnecessary coats or bags into the clinic.
Your Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)
Please make sure you have your own face mask and gloves and you are wearing both prior to stepping out of your vehicle for your appointment. You will need to wear your face mask throughout your appointment. The inability to socially distance during our appointments increases our risks and therefore the protocol needs to be adhered to to protect both of us and our families. Failure to wear your PPE (gloves and mask) will result in rescheduling your appointment. Legally, I am not be able to lend you any PPE.
Whilst in the Clinic
Unfortunately, you will not be allowed to consume any fluids or food whilst in the clinic environment. Not only is it a bit tricky when wearing a face mask (!) but it also increases risks. If your health means you need to consume food/drink regularly, we can pause your appointments for you to take rest-bites in the garden. This will ensure we remain focused on all aspects of your health during your appointments. Please try to ensure 2 meter distancing wherever possible. Fabric pillow cases will not be used, only wipe clean plastic covers. Disposable paper towel will cover the treatment couch, but no blankets or soft towels will be used. Where and when possible, windows, fans and door will be open to increase ventilation.
Payment and rebooking
When you are making your appointment with me, you shall be invoiced digitally for your session. Payment will need to be taken online to secure your booking. No cash or credit cards will be accepted at your appointment. Post your appointment we shall make the decision on when your next appointment will be needed. As from January 2021, I shall only be opening my private clinic two-days per week. This has been a conscious decision to limit the footfall to my clinic thus reducing the exposure rate for COVID-19 transmission.
